I have been using Start 8 with the windows 10 tech preview for over 6 months with no problem yet when I got win 10 pro and tried to install the latest version it would not even let me install due to not having the right OS, I just used my backup copy Start 8 (1.47) that I was using on tech preview and it has no problem installing. There is no compatibility problems or bugs what so ever and everything works just fine! This company does not need to change or upgrade anything from my half year test!! It more seems like a re-branding and cash grab to me! On the flip side $4 is not much to ask however as their is no problems (at least with 1.47) what so ever people would be only upgrading to support the developers!!! You can all just get the version I said and enjoy your start menu being back without having to pay for something we have all already paid for (I do suggest giving a donation to support their work)
If the developers give the option of a donation with a FREE upgrade to Start 10 I would happily give them $10 however because they made the latest version of Start 8 not even install I don't think I would be willing to do that at this point in time as that is very deceptive to the people who have paid in the past and now cant even install something that works fine!! If you be honest and change the installer to allow the latest version to install my faith that it is not just a re-branding and cash grab WILL be restored and add the donate option and you WILL get $10 from me.
It is a great product and worth more than $4!! I really love it!! however dev's are doing this all wrong and losing faith with their current customers.
I also bought windows blinds but after every restart from when I changed windows font size I would have issues with it not being correct and unloading it just would not work and or trying to put a different/default theme would not happen, It kept changing my font size after restarting and stop me from being able to click anywhere all I would get is a loud noise unless I used the keyboard to get to windows font size and change it back than log off then I could use my computer until restart than problem would come back. Even trying to uninstall was a big pain!! It was nice when it worked for the very short time that it did! Clearly it didn't like me increasing the windows font size as had problems from their on and it really likes to leave things in your registry and not uninstall even though I had uninstalled it just so you know. In fact I had to format to get rid of the dam thing as I could not use my computer at all with the mouse from that time on and never reinstalled it due to the above issues! If you ever get it to work properly let me know but please don't expect me to paying for the updated version (windows blinds clearly) for something that never really worked for me in the 1st place and forced me to format to remove it completely.
Off point but many companies pay tribute to Saturn esp in the tech field! Yours is so obvious and in your face but most people don't notice what is in front of them! Do you guys understand why Saturn and it's rings are in most places you see??? I have done a lot of research into this subject and if you don't know and just use the logo for the sake of the fact it works I strongly suggest you look into why tribute is payed to Saturn! A really fascinating subject a real eye opener to say the least! Symbology is fun
PS. Love the alien face you guys use for the default profile pic's with the UFO as the mouth not to mention the name of the company and if you right click the alien face to save the photo it saves as space!! WTF best symbology ever hahahahahaha really well done and thought out thanks for the laugh (I will donate $10 just for the cool symbology if you but add a donate button to your site, not joking I WILL)
One more thing is the . on the K referring to earth, sun, star or planet ?? I can see what the K is when turned sideways just the dot I am not to sure about and don't like to assume! it does however when zoomed in on remind me of the same symbol many ancient cultures drew!
